The Nexus Compendium

Ready for Adventure!

Hi there! Welcome to the Nexus Compendium!

Ready for Adventure!

I have been super active with organizing lots of awesome information from the Nexus that isn't available anywhere else - or from old very dusty books, ugh!

I'm having lots of fun exploring the Nexus, and I have been itchin to share - are you in?! With the Compendium on your side, you can't lose! Anyway, I've found these awesome things:

New ListAll API Added - Posted on 2021-11-24 by Gnub
It's been a while since I touched the API, and as I was given a nudge towards providing the data in a more digestible way, the API was expanded.
  • The ListAll API currently works for Ranked Seasons and Events.
  • Ranked Seasons, Events, Hero Rotations and Sales in the Currently API has gotten a Timespan parameter added, listing the duration in weeks.
  • Details has been updated on the API documentation page.
A few more tweaks are coming to the Filters soon as well, along with the hope of some new content next week.


Additional Filter Tuning - Posted on 2021-11-10 by Gnub
Filter had the potential to be really awesome, so naturally they had to live that potential to the fullest.
  • Added Tint Counts for all Skins, Mounts and Banners shown on the overview pages.
  • Single Tints are still represented by (T), and a text has been added to highlight this, when a filter is applied.
  • The Seasonal Filter has hotlinks added to the full listings of their corresponding Skins, Mounts or Banners. There's also a fitting link to the Events overview.
  • Headers now also fits the name of the applied filter, if any.
  • Hero-Headers are only shown if every Hero has a Skin in the given selection.
  • A Master Skin filter has been added, which includes "Soft Master Skins" (Pro D.Va, Dragon Aspect Alexstrasza and Steel Dragon Genji).
  • The filter showing Mounts that are granted by a Specific Skin, and Skins that grant a Special Mount now link to each other.
  • The Ranked Mounts filter now has a link to the Events overview, showing all Ranked Seasons.
  • The Hero-Specific Mount filter now has a link to the Heroes overview.
  • Limited-Time Offers are now listed as Limited-Time Only in filters.
  • Improved the general method for showing the data.
  • Tints shown on Event, Realm, Seasonal and Universe pages are now correctly shown as a bolded (T).
Let's hope the next update is about the new content from a fresh PTR, despite the recent postponements.


Remaining Item-Filters Added - and Soft Master Skins! - Posted on 2021-10-23 by Gnub
There we go - the remaining filters are hereby added... and a little something extra!
  • Banners now have the following additional Filters available: Normal, Free, Promotional and Exclusive.
  • Mounts now have the following additional Filters available: Normal, Free, Hero-Specific, Skin-Specific, Gems or Bundle, Promotional, Exclusive and Ranked.
  • Skins now have the following additional Filters available: Normal, Free, Announcer, Special Mount and Gems or Bundle.
  • The counters for the summarizations are now shown as "Item Tints" rather than "Items", with a few exceptions for Skins and Mounts.
  • The order of the Types in the summarizations have be slightly reordered, to better match the amount of Tints, across all items.
  • Heroes, that doesn't have any Skins of the specific Filter, are listed as Portraits, rather than as a list.
  • Banners and Mounts will now show up properly left-aligned, if there's only one row of results for the specific Filter.
  • Mount Pages now correctly show if the Gem or Bundle Top-Right Icon, if the Type fits.
  • Skin Details has been updated for Pro D.Va, Dragon Aspect Alexstrasza and Steel Dragon Genji, showing that they were originally meant to be Master Skins, but were released after Heroes 2.0.
  • Various formatting fixes on different pages.
The PTR still looms in the horizon, and hopefully I'll get to squeeze in a few more features beforehand. Data-arranging on Item-Drops also continues.
